at some of today's top stories. president obama is planning more town hall meetings in montana and colorado this week following up on his visit to new hampshire on tuesday. he'll likely keep up attacks on what the white house calls wild misrepresentations of his plan to reform the health care system. >>> secretary of state hillary clinton is set to meet with the president of nigeria on the latest leg of her tour through africa. clinton is expected to continue her calls for better efforts to curb widespread corruption. and there are more signs aspirin can help head off potentially deadly conditions. patients who took the drug reduced their risk of death from colon cancer by nearly 30%. >> wow. going back to hillary clinton story, i wonder what bill clinton thinks of hillary being in nigeria today. >> stop it. that's exactly -- andrea? >> andrea, what does bill clinton think of hillary being in nigeria? >> what we later discovered was where was bill clinton on monday night when she was losing it in con congo? las vegas at a birthday party. an early birthday party. >> i'm sure tha
to what people say in montana. he does. there's been single payors in his state. and this republican force is going to die. when grassley said the other day he pretty much admitted this was a farce, chairman baucus knows he has to get a bill out of this committee and if he only has democrats to work with, guess what the majority democrats on his committee favor a political option. if he's going to get a bill out of this committee with zero republican boats it's going to have to have a public option in the senate finance bill; otherwise, there isn't going to be a bill, right? and he knows there has to be a bill. so it matters what you say. it's one of the reasons i've been very careful not to criticize individual senators. i don't mind talking about their views because at the end, i think we're going to get almost every democratic senator. almost every one because there's not going to be any republicans. they're not going to be interested in forming the bill and, therefore, the democratic caucus is going to have a huge influence in this and the majority of the people in the democratic caucu
or montana or colorado. i think he continues to be very resolved in getting something done on this issue. the president continues to believe that the worst possible outcome is doing nothing because we know what happens when we do nothing. we know that premiums are going to continue to skyrocket, 14,000 people a day are going to lose their proper insurance, but small businesses are going to lose their ability to provide coverage. the leader of the drop the idea of covering employees or drop the number of employees that are covered. and we know that insurance companies are going to continue to discriminate based on whether or not they believe someone has a pre-existing condition or make a determination about whether someone is too sick to receive coverage. that is what doing nothing will do. the president is determined that we will do something to move this process along. >> you are probably aware that a conservative true " -- a conservative group took a shot at the president right as he was leaving for his vacation. i was wonderingpt if you have a response to that, and the larger respons
and hannah montana. here is the amazing thing. those people in the top income category will pay this higher tax -- 2/3 of those are small business owners and operators. how are you going to get more jobs of any tax that employers that create the jobs? one last thing. i use my time but this is important. we have to overcome this class warfare rhetoric. the idea that the rich are evil is a cancer cell in our public dialogue bi. if we do the income-tax increase for the health care and then we do -- a unit of president obama want to move back to the old tax rates? [unintelligible] we are talking about a tax system in the united states for over half of america's high income will be taxed by the government. we are right back in the 1970's. how many of you remember when we had double digit inflation? what about 20% mortgage interest rates? what about gasoline lines? the next eight weeks or maybe the most critical times for our country in the last 50 years. i mean that. we have to say no to bailout. we have to say no to obama care and no to cap and trade. if you can help achieve that comic you will
at it if we want to reach across the country, that's why the president was in montana yesterday in a community not considered typically democrat. he's reaching everywhere to engage the american people because there's not person in this country that isn't touched by healthcare or who right now is not adversely effected by the current healthcare system and it's growing worse every day. that's really the effort to reach out that we're talking about.
